The Head to Head Walkway is an aspirational project to create a continuous walkway around the coastline of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour, from Awaroa/Godley Head to Te Piaka/Adderley Head.
The Head to Head Walkway is a recreation track being developed by the Christchurch City Council and community volunteers.
It is an aspirational goal to have a consecutive walkway around the coast of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour, from Awaroa/Godley Head to Te Piaka/Adderley Head.
Some sections of the route are already available as public walking tracks. Other sections will be developed in stages to create linkages.
This project is driven by the Mt Herbert Community Board and volunteers from the local community.
Where formed, the walkway is suitable for people without expert tramping skills but users will experience different levels of challenge.
Some sections of the walkway are fully accessible for people with disabilities or buggies.
Where possible, sections of the walk are shared with mountain bikers.
Dogs must be either under effective control or leashed on the Head to Head. Please check individual walk pages for more details.
Summer dog rules apply to beaches whereby dogs are prohibited from 1 November to 31 March 9am to 7pm except to pass through on a short leash. Outside of these times dogs must be kept under effective control on beaches.
Dogs are prohibited from the Governors Bay foreshore and mudflats, the Teddington mudflats and the Coastal Cliffs Reserve and foreshore in Diamond Harbour.
Check the dog bylaw map for more information.
The hope is that the sections listed below will be developed in stages over the coming years, to create linkages between existing tracks.
